Hoover cyclean brush stopped revolving


The belt may be broken or worn If your cleaner is not picking up fluff and hair from the carpet or has become heavy to push it is possible that the belt has snapped. This belt makes the sweeping brushes spin round underneath the cleaner and brush dirt into the path of the air suction. The brushes also give that 'groomed' look to your carpet by gently brushing the carpet fibre. If you pick up something sharp or debris gets jammed in the brushes then the belt may snap. Also over time your belt will stretch, so it's a good idea to change your belt once per year to ensure the cleaner picks up dirt effectively.

Brush bar stops spinning when we try to vacuuming. We have cleaned everything and still no luck. Bar spins until we try vacuuming.


Usually what you describe is a stretched out belt. They are very tight when new and will lose elasticity and start to slip after about 6 months. A slipping belt may still pick up hair and lint but can actually force sand and grit down into the carpet yarns. Eventually the belt will be so loose it won't even pick up hair and dust. Try replacing the belt.

Brush is not spinning on the pet hair power brush


Those things work off of suction, which spins a cog wheel that rotates and spins brush via a small belt. Disassemble the brush and check belt. Make sure the apparatus is clean and free of debris

My Hoover windtunnel brush is spinning but not picking up. I cleaned everything out, but still not picking up. There is another small set of 2 wheels that is not spinning. Could that be the problem?


If it's been over 6 months replace the belt or belts. stretch belts lose elasticity soon after being installed which is why they should be replaced frequently. Your belt may still spin the brushroll but not fast enough to clean carpets properly. After a few months it will pick up some of the sandy gritty soils but will force some of it down into the carpet fibers. Eventually it will become so stretched. It will not pick up hair and lint.

Brush won't spin when carpet cleaner is running


see this causes and fix it. God bless you
If the vacuum cleaner brush is not spinning, the brushroll bearing might be jammed. Try removing the brushroll assembly and cleaning all hair, string, lint, etc. from the brushroll bearing. If that doesn't solve the problem the brushroll may need to be replaced.

The turbo brush attachment on my bissell cleanview helix suddenly wont spin. I bought this vacum a month ago. there is nothing wrong with the vacum otherwise.


The turbo brush may just need to be cleaned. If hair or other large debris gets wrapped around the brush, it can prevent it from spinning. Since the top of the turbo brush is clear, you can look in and see if there is a lot of hair wrapped around the brush. If so, you can open it up by removing the two screws on the bottom of the brush and popping the clear cover off, then cleaning all the debris from the brush (scissors work well if its hard to get dog hair off). Be careful to see how the brush goes back together as you take it apart.

If cleaning the brush doesn't fix it, the belt might be broken. As you're looking at the top of the brush, there is a little belt that goes from the brush itself to the large blue/green gear (it's red on some models) so that if you reach your hand in and turn the gear, the brush should spin. If this belt is broken or missing, it will need to be replaced. You can probably find a replacement belt online, or you can order a whole new turbo brush from the Bissell website for $24.99.

It's possible you simply need a new belt or roller brush. Place the power nozzle upside-down turn the vacuum on. Ensure the brush turns. If it doesn't, the belt has broken or is too worn to turn it. Replace the belt. Make sure the tension is properly set prior to reassembling the power nozzle.
Next, with the power nozzle upside down, run the flat of your palm across the brush area. If you can barely feel the bristles, it needs replaced. A good brush will loosen the yarn and strings, but needs to be cleaned periodically.
As long as the powerhead motor is running, there is no need to replace it. If it's not running, look for a reset button and press it. There could also be a broken wire, loose connection, or bad switch causing a power head motor to not operate..

Replaced belts and brush roller will not rotate.


check to see if the spindle (small pencil-thin metal rod) is spinning where it projects from the motor. the belt wraps around this rod. if the rod is spinning when the vac is turned on your brush roller could be jammed. the bearing in the far sides of the brush roller frequently pick of long threads and hair and will stop the brush roller or the bearings sometimes overheat when worn and plastic will melt in this area causing stoppage.

Bissel Cleanview II (bagless 12 amp)


Greetings from GoVacuum.com,

What it sounds like is that your belt has either broken, or has been stretched to a point where the brushes won't spin. What you'll need to do is turn the vacuum cleaner upside down and turn on the vacuum. Are your brushes spinning at all? If your brushes are spinning, when you put the machine on the carpet, does the brush stop spinning, or slow down noticeably?

If either one of these happen, you'll need to replace the belt. Most Bissell uprights will use Bissell Style 7,9, and 10 belt (3 styles, 1 belt). The best way for you to find out what belt your machine takes, is to refer to your owners manual. You may also email me your model number, and I'd be happy to ship you the correct belt.

The instructions on how to replace the belt are also diagrammed and explained at the above link.
There is also a troubleshooting page on page 14.

Please email me if you have any further questions, I'd be happy to answer any question you may come across.
